My kitchen was still dark, the sun was just coming up over the horizon. The silence was all I could hear as I eagerly set the tea kettle on the stove and chose my favorite mug.
I was excited to fill up my cup both literally and figuratively. Heading to my farm-style kitchen table, I sat down with a prayer on my breath. I opened my Bible and sighed, I’m going to get alone with the Lord.
Next thing I heard was the sound of one of my kids scampering across the hardwood floor heading right to me. It was the clingy toddler, so I knew my time with the Lord was over for now.
Is it just me, or do you find yourself struggling to find the time to get with the Lord?
Not only do I have a difficult time finding the time, but also what to do with the Bible when I finally find that time.
So many times I’ll open the Bible and almost “eeny, meany, miny, moe” to where I want to begin reading. I’ll catch myself reading, but when I ask myself what it means, I’ll forget what I just read.
Does this happen to you?
By the time my toddler is content again, I’ll return to my cold cup of tea and the table to try again.
I’ll read His words on the edge of my seat ready to jump at command to my child. My Creator wants me relaxed and refreshed when I leave His presence. This mom wasn’t feeling any of that.
Sound familiar? No wonder it takes me 3 hours to drink a mug of tea in the morning.
The Missing Part of My Bible Study
Here’s what I’ve been missing. I have been trying to read quantity over quality. Even if I could just read a verse or two, it’s still progress and growth. My problem is, I just need to know what to do with the passage to extract more of the meaning out of it.
Here’s where I need help. In the past, I’ve learned a few methods of studying the Bible, but the steps were complicated and I needed my notes in order to do it. Keeping track of notes with kids is pretty much useless. Complicated steps in the midst of the busy aren’t do-able.
Renewing Your Mind
My friend, Arabah Joy, just designed a course about Bible Study Methods. She will be teaching seven methods through video. For seven days, you will get an email with a new method.
